"The Houston-based company next week will announce new versions of its software for identifying operating system security holes in Unix, Linux and Windows NT systems...."

"In addition, PentaSafe next week will introduce new agents that work with Apache and Netscape Web servers to protect against hackers. The VigilEnt software in this case monitors the state of the Web servers from the safety of a mirrored server; when an unauthorized change is made to a Web page, the page automatically reverts to its original state, according to Doug Irwin, PentaSafe's president and CEO."

"Also next week, PentaSafe will announce partnerships to integrate its software with BEA System Inc.'s Tuxedo transaction software and with Red Hat Software Inc.'s Red Hat Linux...."

"Our Linux products are still based on individual servers," Irwin said. "That is a market play ... so Linux users will have a good experience and" use VigilEnt when they eventually build Linux-based networks."
